This small celluloid Santa is an unusual old pencil sharpener. Santa is nicely detailed with one hand raised and the other holding the magic toy sack over his shoulder. You can see the texture of the fur on his coat and the whiskers of his beard. The red coat has a pink cast as is common with most red paint on celluloid. The celluloid is marked Made in Japan on the lower back under the sack. The metal pencil sharpener inserts into the base and is removable so you can empty the graphite shavings. The metal part is painted and it is embossed Made in Japan on the cone.
Santa measures about 2 ½” tall and is in very condition appearing to have been never, or seldom used. The celluloid has no damage and the colors are good. There is a little discoloration on the blade.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
